Bryan Reinholdt of Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW), Louisville Chapter and a member of IVAW's national Board, will give a presentation and answer questions.
Veterans' movements have guided the country in the past. What's different now? Who is out there and how can we creatively sustain the anti-war movement? How can the anti-war movement approach Afghanistan? These and other topics will be addressed through the lens of an Iraq veteran serving veterans through the organization Iraq Veterans Against the War.
Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) is an advocacy group of American active duty military personnel, Iraq War veterans, Afghanistan War veterans, and other post-September 11, 2001, veterans. The members are opposed
to the U.S. occupation of Iraq. The organization advocates immediate withdrawal of all occupation forces in Iraq, reparations to Iraq so that their people can control their own lives and future, and full benefits, adequate healthcare (including mental health), and other supports for returning servicemen and women.
IVAW currently has over 1,700 members in 61 chapters in 48 states.
